Well, of all things! I've been waiting on a doctor appointment date to arrive and today was the day. Got dressed, walked out to the car, turned the key.........and NOTHING. I mean zilch! So, I've had to reschedule my appointment and here I am, all dressed up and nowhere to go. Don't you just hate that!!
I can't fuss too much at my car. She's been a good one, just perfect for me and she's been faithful for 18 years. You can't beat that with a stick!!
It was the first car that I bought by myself. Son-in-law helped figure out the financial end of it. But, Elbert had Alzhemiers and could no longer take care of things.
I remember so well him fussing at me about that car! He couldn't figure out how a woman could go down and buy a car. That was the man's job and he'd always taken care of it. I'd go along and give the final approval but he was the car buyer. And, lo and behold, his wife had gone down and bought a car. He argued that I'd gotten it from some shyster who had cheated me out of my money and all sorts of things.
I just listened and let him talk. You don't argue with an Alzheimer's patient. In a day or two we got in that car and I drove us to the beach. Not a word outta him.
Well, until this morning....
